Scientific name: Hydrangea Macrophylla
Overview: The hydrangea is a deciduous shrub that is usually grown as an ephemeral. It has shiny, large, pointed oval leaves. During spring, the end of the stems are capped with a large, rounded inflorescence that is usually only composed of pink, purple, blue or white flowers. Flowering can last for more than two months if the temperature is cool.
- Lighting: Intense to Medium.
- Watering: As soon as the soil begins to dry. Maybe two or three times a week because hydrangeas uses large amounts of water.
- Temperature: Tolerates a normal temperature during bloom but prefers cool temperature around 18ºC in the summer and up to 5ºC at night in the winter.
- Humidity: Humid atmosphere at all times.
- Fertilizer: Balanced (20-20-20 All Purpose) or for green plants during the growth period if you want to keep the plant after flowering.
